Mastermind
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Once upon a time, the planets and the fates
And all the stars aligned
You and I ended up in the same room
At the same time

And the touch of a hand lit the fuse
Of a chain reaction of countermoves
To assess the equation of you
Checkmate, I couldn't lose
What if I told you none of it was accidental
And the first night that you saw me, nothing was gonna stop me?
I laid the groundwork and then, just like clockwork
The dominoes cascaded in a line

What if I told you I'm a mastermind?
And now you're mine
It was all by design
'Cause I'm a mastermind

You see, all the wisest women
Had to do it this way
'Cause we were born to be the pawn
In every lover's game

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail
Strategy sets the scene for the tale
I'm the wind in our free-flowing sails
And the liquor in our cocktails

What if I told you none of it was accidental
And the first night that you saw me, I knew I wanted your body?
I laid the groundwork and then, just like clockwork
The dominoes cascaded in a line

What if I told you I'm a mastermind?
And now you're mine
It was all my design
'Cause I'm a mastermind

No one wanted to play with me as a little kid
So I've been scheming like a criminal ever since
To make them love me and make it seem effortless
This this the first time I've felt the need to confess
And I swear
I'm only cryptic and Machiavellian 'cause I care

So I told you none of it was accidental
And the first night that you saw me, nothing was gonna stop me
I laid the groundwork and then saw a wide smirk
On your face, you knew the entire time

You knew that I'm a mastermind
And now you're mine
Yeah, all you did was smile
'Cause I'm a mastermind

“What if I told that none of it was accident”

I was never really a fan of Taylor (but I know and love some of her songs) but my girl loved her and we decided to listen to ‘Midnights’, but I just want to share our story with you guys.

I can definitely say that I'm a mastermind. Back then, we were talking (as friends) how not ready we are for a relationship, but as the time flies, one day I just woke saying, “I'm liking her, I definitely want to take care of her.”. I made moves (that's not obvious ofc) one her, just because I can't contain the feelings I have for her.

We met in a world that nobody knows who you really are. When I saw here stories on Facebook, I admit that she's attractive but intimidating. We got close, from a simple Hi and Hellos to talk for hours. I liked her (I know, I easily get attached) but didn't have the courage to tell her, I ended up keeping it.

I liked here not just because of her looks (that's just a bonus), but because of her attitude and personality. She's strong, kind, and cute (I know, I'm addicted to her.). So I made moves that wouldn't be obvious, I made jokes calling her our endearment right now. And it turns out that she also likes me. I know, right? I didn't plan for it, just for her to notice my feelings.

Guess what? We celebrated our first anniversary last June. And I'm telling you, guys. As the day pass by, I am falling for her even more.

I know, it's too cheesey, so what? I love her and I'm proud of it.

Not all of her songs are based on reality.

She's admitted in quite a few interviews that she is very calculated though. Specifically Buzzfeed and I think Vogue.

@Arnav Sheelvant oh no, i must've missed that! regardless, i think it's really cool that she's able to embrace it and joke about it without people crucifying her for it. but thanks for sharing that :)

Okay but the idea of "I need to confess that I plotted and schemed to get with you" being met with "Oh, I know" is really adorable and sweet? You know someone's your perfect match when they've seen through you the whole time and it just makes them love you more.
